Lone Star is my daily drinker/cheap beer, Shiner Bock my "if I like my company a bit" beer, and St. Arnold's makes some really good beer. Abita Amber and Turbo Dog are also favorites in my "normal" beer category.

Otherwise, I enjoy all kinds of microbrews and imports, and enjoy the output of my home brewing pals as well.

Oh and Ziegenbock is a cheap Shiner Bock rip off perpetrated by Anheiser Busch (complete with insulting to Spoetzel ad campaign) and should be dumped/knocked out of the hand of your friend/pissed in whenever encountered (it would probably improve the flavor).

I just tried Shiner Bock's Black Lager. It's pretty good.


I had the Liefmans Cuvee Brut tonight for the first time, and it was absolutely delicious.

Also, Goose Island Dominique is good, though higher ABV than I would normally have.


Excellent American Beer lists, thank you. I'll have to see which ones I can find in my area, I've never been a fan of American style lagers like Miller, Budweiser, and so on, I have had some great seasonal Sam Adams beers though, I can't believe I didn't remember that. Continuing with the let's educate idilippy segment of this thread, does anyone know any local brews worth trying/visiting in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?

I've been looking for a beer/s that one can see it completely loaded with gunk (technical beer term) when looking into the glass. I saw an example of it on a show entitled: Dhani Tackles the World. I believe this particular episode either took place in Ireland or Scotland.

Any suggestions of the type/s of beer I'm talking about and where to aquire said beer/s would be greatly appreciated. Keep in mind I live in USofA.

What colour was it? Light amber? There are several lagers brewed in continental Europe that are cloudy - wheat beers are commonly cloudy.


I cannot help it. My tastes have changed as I have grown older. I used to love the pale ales... no more. Anymore, if I cannot have a LandShark, I am just as fine with a MGD as anything else. For me, beer has become the drink to cool and quench after I mow the lawn on a Floridian summer day.

Abita beer makes a strawberry lager (one of their 3 harvest beers) that I always try and find a case or 5 of, just for such activity.


Molson Export
Budweiser
MGD
Corona

And being a Newfie, masters of inebriation, I would be at fault if I failed to mention a few of my fave provincial beer:

Blue Star
Dominion Ale
Black Horse

I always preferred Jockey Club if going to a party because I know no one would steal my damn beer.

Here's a little jingle all beer drinkers should listen to:

The Abita strawberry beer is good, but the best strawberry beer I've ever had is Fruli. It's a Belgian fruit beer, relatively low alcohol, and it tastes like a beer/strawberry smoothie. It's kinda hard to get in the U.S., but SO worth it if you can find it.

Mine, too.

Sam Adams for me. I'm also a fan of Landshark, Warstiener, Guinness (stout & draft), Highland, and, being a Georgia Boy - Sweetwater, Moon River, and Terrapin. I'll drink just about anything put in front of me, except Indian pale ales and other sweet beers. That's just too weird for me. I don't drink beer that's sweet and tastes of clove and patchouli.

As a side note, we need a thread for hard liquor.

So, last night I went over to the home of one of my gaming buddies - Carl from the Flagons and Dragons podcast. He, his wife and another gaming buddy, Todd, and his wife had Missus Zombie and I over at Carl's for dinner. They also gave us baby related stuff, 'cause that's how awesome they are!

Anyway, Todd brought along a bottle of Dogfish Head B*@%$es Brew - a special brew they were asked to do in conjunction with the 40th anniversary of Miles Davis' famous B%*&~es Brew album. If I recall correctly, this was the beer featured in one of the first episodes of Brewmasters.

Awesome beer! I hope they make it again one day.

This is what I'm drinking tonight.

Robert Johnson's Hellhound on my Ale:
2011 marks the birthday of Mississippi Delta bluesman Robert Johnson who, according to legend, sold his soul down at the crossroads in a midnight bargain and changed music forever. Dogfish Head pays tribute to this blues legend by getting' the hellhounds off his trail and into this finely-crafted ale. Hellhound is a super-hoppy ale that hits 100 IBUs in the brewhouse, 10.0% ABV, 10.0 SRM in color, and dry-hopped with 100% centennial hops at a rate of 100 kilos per 100 barrel brew-length. To accentuate and magnify the citrusy notes of the centennial hops (and as a shout out to Robert Johnson's mentor Blind Lemon Jefferson) we add dried lemon peel and flesh to the whirlpool.

It's a great time to be a beer lover!

Just as a note, New Glarus beers aren't sold outside Wisconsin. Also, Budvar is called Czechvar here in the U.S. (Some sort of worry about legal troubles with Budweiser over the name, even though Budweiser sort of stole their name from the city that makes Budvar...)

MY new favourite is Mr. Chubb's Lunchtime Bitter

I've also been getting back into Old Tom.


I have a fairly wide range of tastes these days but some of my favorites are Yuengling Lager (the default for a lot of us people who grew up in the Philly area), Bud or Bud Select (fine for a casual beer, especially with food since it isn't really strong), Sam Adams Cherry Wheat (my favorite of theirs) and Dos Equis (with Mexican food naturally). Also, whatever beer the other person is paying for. :-)

As a side note, when in Belize on vacation about 9 years ago I had a bunch of their Belican Mayan Temple beer. Does anyone know if this beer is still made, imported into the US and if so is available anywhere in the Northern Virginia area?

I recall a recent article that said Philly is one of the top cities in the country for beer enthusiasts.

Must be why I like living here.

My local place now has some bottled US beer but it is expensive.

Any opinions on Big Sky, Eel River or Tommyknockers (I think those were the brewery names, could be wrong).

Beer sucks...carry on.

IIRC, Tommyknockers' IPA and Bock were good. I don't recall which others I've had. We're pretty spoiled with all of our micro brews here in Colorado.


I live in Dublin, so Guinness is pretty prevalent! The pub nearest my college has awful, awful Guinness though. Luckily there's one just around the corner (about 10 seconds further away) that does nice Guinness, and has a range of nice microbrews that aren't available anywhere else, including a Weissbier and a red ale.

Guinness (when it's nice) is my favourite stout, followed by another local microbrew called Oyster Stout- it's actually brewed in a tank with oysters at some point.

When I was in Germany I discovered a taste for dunkelbier, with Warsteiner being the most common I found. Weissbier is also pretty nice, Paulaner and Erdinger being the most common ones, both of which I'm a big fan of!

Not a big lager drinker, but Staropramen is possibly my favourite. From the few American beers I've had, the nicest is undoubtedly Anchor Steam.

Contrary to what this post might imply, I'm not a big drinker, but I do like my fancy beers. I'm kinda disappointed I can't find anywhere that sells 40 oz. malt liquor in this country though...

For casual drinking with a meal, I like ciders and lambics. Hornsby's green label and Ace Perry are my faves of the ciders. About the best mass-produced lambic I've had is Leinenkugel's Berry-Weissen, a raspberry-infused witbier. Other microbrew lambics may be better, but I don't know any of them by name - I tend to Russian Roulette them off of large beer menus on nights out.

For serious drinking, I'm a big fan of witbiers. Blue Moon or Hoegaarden will do in a pinch, but I much prefer a local microbrew witbier - Natty Greene's Wildflower.

I'll also drink amber ales from time to time. Thick stouts aren't my favorites, but if they have a good, smooth bouquet and finish, I don't mind them. I avoid pale ales like the plague - too much of a bitter finish for my tastes.

At present, I'm drinking a Dogfish head Squall 90 Minute IPA. Bottle-conditioned. A respectable 9% ABV. All in all, a pretty good beer.

Scarab Sages

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Tonight...what a shock...I'm drinking another Dogfish Head. My Antonia is brewed with pilsner malts and continually-hopped with a blend of Noble and West Coast hops. 7.5% ABV.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

I miss Dogfish. Drank it regularly in NJ. Do they make more than one IPA? They may have actually made my first IPA.

Five that I can think of: 60 Minute, 90 Minute, 120 Minute, Burton Baton, and Squall.

None of these chronological names sound familiar. Maybe it could have been Squall? This would have been at least 10 years ago.

Found a bottle of my homebrewed IPA that I had stuck away and forgotten a bout.

Mmmmm.......


Oh, and also, Innis and Gunn is delicious. A really toffee-y flavour, it's almost like it's a desert beer. Can be a bit rich too drink more than a glass or two of, but it's very tasty. Made by a small brewery in Scotland I believe.

Woodchuck Cider is great. Too bad it's seasonal.

Surly is good. Minneapolis microbrew.

So is Southshore Brewery in WI. They make a barley wine called "Barley Legal." Not sure if they've bottled it yet though.

My wife wanted me to post her favorite:

Furthermore Fatty Boombalatty. WI belgian pale ale.

If you're feeling a bit of adventure, try Golden Monkey.

For me, Kilkenny (which is starting to make it's way in the States), Guinness, O'Hara's Irish Red and Irish Stout, Old Speckled Hen, Smithwick's, and Boddington's.


Free and/or cold.

Tough question since I live in a town with 15 Brewers.

New Belgium Easy Street Wheat with a twist of orange
OH and New Belgium hase free beer Tue - Saturday. A great way to sample the new stuff

And O'Dells Sunshine, and then there two new seasonal that are also wheat but I cannot think of the names
